A massive '18' Patrols enter

MA 3

MA 2This annual event for Scouts in Ripon & District was recently hosted by 1st Boroughbridge Group at the Coronation Hall, Milby, Boroughbridge,

A massive 18 Patrols (Teams), each of them between 3 and 6 Scouts, from Troops in  Ripon, Boroughbridge, Sowerby, Topcliffe, Masham and Thirsk came together for just over 2 hours of FUN and FRIENDSHIP whilst tackling 12 challenging tasks each out of the 18 bases provided for them to complete.

The 18 Bases included: Marshmallow and Pasta Pioneering, Knotting, Mastermind, Jamboree locations, Union Jack jigsaw, 'Get out of that', Map symbol memory, First Aid scenario, Mountain height recognition, Scouting snakes and ladders, Estimating weights, Kim's game, Skittles, Meccano Pioneering and Chief Scouts past & present recognition

After the tasks were completed, the scores were added together and there were only 6 points between the FIRST PLACE and the THIRD PLACE making it a truly 'nail-biting' finish.

The top three Patrols (Teams) were deemed to be, in reverse order - 3rd was 'Team O' (from 6th Ripon) with 81 points - 2nd was 'Team I' (from 6th Ripon) with 83 points - and the WIINERS were 'Team E' from (1st Masham) with 87 points.
